Cambrian Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
The Cambrian area of south west San Jose in Santa Clara County is a quiet, tightly-knit, highly desirable community of some 40,000 residents forming the southwestern part of the Willow Glen neighborhoods.

It is only 45 minutes from San Francisco and is within easy reach of the cultural and recreational offerings of the entire Bay Area.

Conveniently close highways, light rail public transportation access, and nearby shopping centers help make this thoughtfully planned community even more attractive.
A majority of the area is served by the Union and Cambrian Elementary and Middle School districts, each of which have earned the designation, California Distinguished Schools, with student test scores in the 90th percentiles.
